Overview Edit

The game is the first Tetris game on the Nintendo DS, and has many new updates and modes from the original, or past versions. The most notable is the inclusion of Wifi, which will allow you to face against either two or three players around the world. Tetris DS is also the first portable Tetris game to have wifi, and the first to feature classic Nintendo characters such as Mario and Link (in the actual mode), excluding Tetris Attack, which featured Yoshi and Bowser. The game also features items and power-ups in the multi-player mode which will either help you, or harm your opponent.

Many new modes include Mission, Puzzle, Catch, Touch, Push, and the regular Standard mode. Each one other than standard use new elements never seen in the Tetris formula. Each mode features a classic NES game theme coming from games such as Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Yoshi's Cookie, Donkey Kong, Balloon Fight, and many others. Each mode also includes the music from the game featured.
